With several lines of quality cutlery and other products you’re sure to find the perfect housewarming or wedding gift or addition to your own kitchen.A good chef’s knife becomes your daily kitchen companion. It’s used for everything from prepping steaks for the grill to finely mincing onions, and chances are you’ll reach for it every time you cook–so it better be good. This lower-priced line from Henckels is a great value: excellent quality knives with their standard lifetime warranty. There’s good balance, and the handles are a shade heavier than other lines, which some cooks will prefer. The 8-inch blade length is the most practical for multipurpose use, and regular sharpening will keep the stainless-steel blade razor-sharp. It’s only minimally flexible, which makes it a great choice for vegetables such as potatoes and turnips. While it’s dishwasher-safe, unless it needs sanitizing after use with raw meat, it’s often easier to hand wash. –Jill Lightner

If you haven’t updated your chef’s knife for ten or twenty years (I used to have a ’70s Sabatier), check out the new ones.The high-carbon stainless steel used here sharpens and cuts as well as old knives without staining. It has scratched slightly during washing, but still shines spotlessly. The knife is stiff and thick — the blade is about a quarter-inch across at its base.

The balance is actually a bit handle-heavy, so if the knife falls, it falls handle first.A great cutter, but a bit heavy for everyday slicing — I’m getting the 6″ version too.(Update: Henckels’s warranty service also deserves praise.
